Electronic Submission of Injury and Illness Records to SC OSHA

Federal OSHA electronic reporting requirements are not required for South Carolina employers. Any changes regarding the electronic reporting submission process will be updated on the SC OSHA webpage, http://scosha.llronline.com.

Crane Operator Certification Deadline Extended

OSHA issued a final rule to delay compliance deadline for crane operator certification requirements to November 10, 2018. By delaying the deadline for employers to ensure that crane operators are certified by one year, and by extending the employer duty to ensure crane operators are competent until that same date, the rule avoids disrupting the construction industry and allows OSHA time to complete a related crane standard rulemaking addressing these and other issues.

More information is available in the Federal Register notice.

SC OSHA will also follow Federal OSHA’s compliance deadline extension.
